It seems like I managed to bag a free talk talk sim for life (confirmed by talktalk representative)- Zero cost per month. Great for a backup sim.

This is the procedure I followed (while switching from sky):

Step 1- Call and order Fiber broadband with talktalk ( not sure it it works with anything else).
Step 2- They will offer you a free sim ( 100m 200MB and 25txt per month)- accept it.
Step 3- Call again in 5 minutes and cancel the broadband.

For some reason they only cancel the broadband but you still receive the sim. Just call to activate the sim and you can put a credit limit of £1 to ensure that you never go out of pocket.

I am just sharing for benefit of others. I can't guarantee that this will work for you.

Sorry but cold. Highly doubt this will last long when they see an influx of orders and then immediate cancellations.
Well played it's worth a try even if others are pessimistic about it

So you voted cold based on the principle that the freebie will get pulled? Riiiiight.
heat, I got it just by enquiring about Fibre. I think it's probably available to most customers if they just rang up.
Do be prepared for their up-selling.

I still haven't activated mine.

Can you tell me how you did it exactly?ive got sky tv but my broadband with virgin
trick here is that you go over your allowence and if you do . you will get a shock of your life.. my friend had to pay nearly 200 quid for 1.6gb of data which he thought he was using wifi but instead it was on mobile even thought spocidly he had a cap of 25 quid a month on his contract.
and they will be sending you bills for months even after you have terminated your contract
I really would not like to try that. I would be worried of a bill of some sort from talktalk landing on the the mat. From what I have read in the op it appears to be free if you take out fibre from talk talk, but if you have canceled the fiber are you really entitled to this freebie? OK it may not be your fault if talk talk didn't cancel the sim at the same time as canceling the fibre, but if they later discover this later and it is as I suspect only free if you have another service with them there could be a lot of hassle trying to get it sorted out with talk talk.

Therefore in the words of the dragons....................... I'm out

Trick

Don't go over your allowance...!
I am a TalkTalk customer and have a 'free' SIM card. When I cancelled the contract a few months ago they started charging me £5 a month.
yep, it's only free if you are a customer, it's £5 otherwise. calls and everything else out of the bundled mins/txt/mbs are very expensive. I think they are giving this to customers in the hope they will go over the bundle and it will be another cash cow for TT. BEWARE.
